It is that time of year. There is a chill in the air, tailgating and the sounds of crowds cheering on their “boys of fall.” For the town of Cooper, it is the success of the Bulldog football team that has the folks excited.
After a five-year drought, Cooper is finally reaping the benefits from the boost given to their athletic program. The Bulldogs, also the 21-point underdogs by the Harris Ratings, will face off with former district foes, the No. 5-Lone Oak Buffaloes, tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the newly remodeled Memorial Stadium at Texas A&M-Commerce for the rights to the area championship title. Tickets for the game are $7 at the gate.
